Major Lazer is set to perform live in South Africa!
The band is set to tour Africa in September and October, with dates in South Africa, Malawi, Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda. While in Africa, Major Lazer will also work with VETPAW (Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife) to combat poaching in South Africa and beyond.
Major Lazer debut a brand new Afrobeats Mix, blending music from across the continent and lending their global platform to trendsetting African artists and their longtime inspirations and collaborators, as well as teasing new music, here.
Additionally a new song, “All My Life,” featuring Nigerian vocalist Burna Boy today. The song comes alongside a Lagos, Nigeria-shot video directed by South African filmmaker Adriaan Louw—listen and watch here. “All My Life” is the first of a handful of collaborations with African artists coming this fall.
Over the past few years we’ve had the chance to tour extensively and work with artists across Africa
These music scenes continue to inspire the music we make and sets we play. We wanted to bridge our music as Major Lazer with all these new sounds and genres coming out of Africa. From Babes Wodumo the Queen of Gqom to our brother Mr. Eazi, who is taking over the globe with each release, to new voices Kizz Daniel and legends like Burna Boy, two of our favorite songwriters coming out of Nigeria. These artists along with Raye, Taranchyla and Kranium make up the new music we’ll be releasing over the next month to coincide with our tour in Africa at the end of September. Major Lazer has been fairly quiet in 2018 on the touring and music front, but this is the beginning of what will come next for us. I’m excited to share these four songs with you and the videos that our director made are some of the best we have ever put out
“All My Life” follows collaborations with Cashmere Cat, Tory Lanez and Rudimental and 2017’s critically acclaimed Know No Better EP.
